A Talib’s Tale: The Life and Times of a Pashtoon Englishman
When John Butt arrived in Peshawar in 1970, before long he turned from hippy, to Pashtoon, to talib - student of Islam. It was his study of Islam that prepared him for a career as a storyteller - the Man who Brought the Archers to Afghanistan. A Talibs Tale provides readers with an inside account of madrassa life and Pashtoon society, not to mention Kabul jail and tribal captivity. Containing anecdotes from his life both before and after he shifted to the subcontinent, and with a keen and optimistic attitude towards becoming the best version of himself, Butt tells a wonderful and heartfelt tale of a man who finds a home in the most unexpected place.
